Nationwide Realty Investors Ltd. is planning three residential projects on the last significant development land in the core of the Arena District.
NRI President Brian Ellis told me the 69-condo first phase of the Parks Edge complex will feature one’ two-, and three-bedroom units ranging from $450,000 to more than $2 million.
“We think Parks Edge will be comparable to the quality we achieved in the North Bank condos,” Ellis said this morning in reference to the 20 -story condo tower at Spring Street across Neil A venue from Parks Edge. “We’re always looking to improve.”
To that end, he said the Parks Edge complex will have a plaza along Spring overlooking the North Bank Park in front of a two-story atrium in the midst of the first two phases. It also will feature a swimming pool atop a four-story, 327-slot parking garage.
Ellis said that marks the first such amenity serving any of Nationwide Realty’s residential projects in the Arena District.
“There’s a lot of interest and demand for a pool,” he said, “and we’re considering whether we can make that available to owners of the North Bank and Burnham Square condos . … We think that has the potential to be a neighborhood gathering place.”
